On May 25, 2018, the long awaited Global Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR) was implemented. If a company does not adhere to these regulations, they could be fined up to 4% of their global revenues, or €20 million: whichever is greater. Unfortunately, GDPR adherence within medical information is hard to do with complete confidence, and interpretations vary company by company, especially when patient safety is involved.
While not offering legal advice on the interpretation of GDPR, this webinar focusses on the practical implementation of GDPR within a medical information management system. This includes consent to collect (and share) patient data, data retention, redaction of personal identifiable information (PII) and potential GDPR exclusions. It also discusses options for handling of medical information queries incorporating both adverse events and product complaints.
